This invention relates to ink fountains for
printing presses and the like and particularly for
presses printing in different colors.
The principal objects of the invention are to
Each fountain roll is driven through a gear ll
secured to the end which projects through the
fountain bowl. It meshes with a gear i2, carried
on the shaft i3’, whichextends across the width

of the press. The shaft II is driven from a source
of power through bevel gears l4 and ii. of
course, there is one gear [2 for each movable
plurality of units, individually removable; to
provide an ink fountain of a length less than the
full width of the paper to be printed, and to pro

will appear hereinafter.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying
drawings, in which
Fig. 1 is an end view of a part of a printing
press showing a preferred embodiment of this
invention, the fountain being shown in section;
Fig. 2 is a plan of a part of the ink fountain;
Fig. 3 is a side elevation;
Fig. 4 is a sectional view of a part of th
20 fountain showing the adjusting device.
When different colored inks are used in the
same inking system, it has been customary here
tofore to have a single fountain with partitions in
it separating it into compartments for the ‘dif
ferent color inks.
This involves some cli?lculty
owing to leakage through the partitions and‘
especially to the fact that it is difficult to clean
one of the compartments when it has to be
emptied and a different colored ink put in. it.
This invention is designed to eliminate these dif
iiculties and to avoid the delay and difficulty of
the cleaning of the fountains.
The invention is shown as applied to an inking
gear ii carried on the. end of that particular
‘ fountain roll.

removable fountain bowl I0 which rests on a ma
chined surface on its upper side. This machined
surface cooperates with feet ii on the several
fountain bowls and the latter carry a T-slot con 15

are yieldingly pressed upwardly by springs iii
to provide a clearance so that the fountain bowl

against bars 29 which may be considered as
integral with the brace l6 and extend between
feet I'I. They are used for adjusting the fountain
roll to the desired distance from the pick-up roll
‘I. Each individual fountain bowl of course is
adjusted in a way to adjust the position of its
fountain roll.
Each fountain bowl is fixed in adjusted position
by a hinged bolt 28 secured to bar 29 and thumb
nut 22 so that good inking can be obtained. Each.

runs very close to the pick-up roller 1 but does

as is usual in this art.
The combined fountain is made up of fountain
roll sections 9, each one of approximately one
page width, that is, sufficiently wide to ink a
‘single page. ’ Each fountain roll is rotatably sup

fountain in the same way that the short fountain

manner and returned to position with equal

one form of the invention I am aware of the fact
that modifications can be made therein by any
person skilled in the art without departing
.from the scope of the invention as expressed in
the claims. Therefore I do not wish to be
limited in this respect otherwise than as set forth
in the claims, but what I claim is:—
